Enjoy the stunning surrounds of Healesville Sanctuary and enjoy a bevvy or two while meeting new furry friends

What could be better than watching native Australian animals in Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary? Doing it with a drink in your hand, of course.

Hop Fest is a celebration of small producers of beer and cider taking place at Healesville Sanctuary over the Melbourne Cup weekend.

There will be tastings from Hargreaves Hill, Watt’s River Brewing, Coldstream Brewery, Got Ya Back Beers, Napoleone, St Ronan’s Cider and Cherry Hill Ochards, along with a special Chandon bar, where visitors can taste a new twist on the classic Champagne cocktail.

All that nature and drinks will have you hungry, so there will be street food including pulled pork and jackfruit tacos, steamed corn with harissa butter, salt and pepper squid, soft pretzels and sticky ribs with hot sauce.

Don’t think you’ll miss out on animal encounters while you’re enjoying your food and drink, though, as the zookeepers will be bringing around furry, scaly and feathered friends to say hello.

There will also be plenty of live music, so you can have a boogie.
